Yo, who knew male ballroom dancers could be such studs? Dancing with the Stars bad boy Maksim Chmerkovskiy gets AROUND, guys – he’s been with several of his dance partners from the show, dated Kate Upton and may now have moved on… to Jennifer Lopez?!
Lopez, 44, met the dancing hunk, 34, through her best friend Leah Remini and her DWTS partner Tony Dovolani, but the two have been taking it slow due to work commitments.
“He danced with her at the [American Music Awards last November] and they kept in touch,” a friend of the singer’s tells PEOPLE.
Says another source who knows both Lopez and Chmerkovskiy: “They are friends and have been talking.”
I don’t know why, but I sorta really love the idea of these two as a couple, to be honest. Of course it won’t last long – don’t expect any marriage bells down the line or anything, but a little fun for them both I think is certainly in the cards for a little while. Plus, I think Jen’s realized she needs to up the age bracket a bit if she wants someone slightly more stable. It’s fine to get your cougar on and all, but boys in their early 20s? Come on, now.
